3D Laser Scanning

3D laser scanning technology digitally captures the dimensions and spatial relationship of objects using a line of laser light. The powerful laser recording of field data that captures a site’s or module’s shapes and appearance then converts those conditions into a cloud of data points which can be uploaded into a 3D model and used in CAD programs. 

A 3D laser scanning tool can enable a high level of coordination on design, fabrication and construction activities for clients and subcontractors. The proven benefits of laser scanning include: 

  • Improved Planning & Design 
  • Safety & Regulatory Compliance 
  • Cost & Schedule Reductions 
  • Automation
  • Accuracy & Efficiency 

Radium utilizes laser scanning when fabricating modules; finished modules are checked prior to shipping to ensure tolerances and quality control has been met to the client standards and expectations. Scan data can easily be uploaded to a cloud and information can be shared with the client.

  • Laser scans can easily be processed in a few hours and uploaded to a cloud base servers for clients and contractors.
    Modularization Scan 1

  • Laser scan also provide valuable information for design, fabrication and logistics for clients and contractors resulting in cost and schedule savings.

    Modularization Scan 2

  • Modularization can provide clients and contractors with signification cost savings for shop fabrications vs. stick-building in the field (+/- 25% in equipment and labour and upwards to 50% when camp/LOA and travel are factored in).
